Magnetek Enrange™ Flex M Receiver

Magnetek Enrange™ Flex M Receiver

The versatile Enrange Flex M wireless receiver features a modular plug-and-play design (similar to a PLC) which allows one plant to use the same type of receiver component for any size application.

Each essential part of a wireless receiver is built into compact, machine mountable modules. The family of modules can then be combined together to form a complete radio receiver system. The versatile Flex M can provide digital, analog, or serial interfaces, and is capable of one-way or two-way communication. Flex M can manage systems ranging from simple relay outputs to complex I/O and communication networks.

System Structure
Each module is connected by an integral side connector that supplies internal communications and power.

  • Consists of a RF/CPU serving as the brains of the system
  • Another component is the selected power module
  • As many output (relay or other) or input modules as needed for the application can be added
  • LED lights provide diagnostics for each individual module
  • Each module has up to four removable connectors for easy wiring and replacement of any modules

Range of Modules Available

  • Power supply modules: 120/230 Vac and 9-36 Vdc
  • Two-way and high power 125mW (2000+ foot) RF modules
  • Digital and analog input modules
  • RS-232, RS-422, and CAN-BUS serial communication modules
  • Mechanical relay output modules
  • Analog (0 to +/- 10 Vdc) output modules

Versatile and Customizable Design

  • Engineered system offers the choice of I/O and RF power
  • System can expand for different applications, making it ideal for plant wide use
  • Features 35mm din rail mountable modules
  • Systems requiring data feedback such as load weight are available
  • Can be coupled with a user-operated transmitter or configured with another Flex M for point-to-point communications

Radio Drive Serial Interface (RDSI)
The RDSI module is designed to communicate via a serial interface to directly control Magnetek’s IMPULSE®•G+/VG+ Series 4, Series 3, and IMPULSE®•G+ Mini Adjustable Frequency Crane Controls (consult factory for compatibility if you have an existing RDSI setup with a Series 2 drive). It provides users with diagnostic and troubleshooting information on the ground so there is no need to get up on the crane.

  • Automatically detects drive types
  • Eliminates the need for drive contactors
  • Provides feedback parameters directly from the drive, including Drive Status, Output Frequency, Output Voltage, Output Current, Output Power, and Torque Reference
  • Reduces system costs by eliminating relay cards, excessive wiring and labor
